Urvashi Kaur’s for WLIFW SS 2014


Urvashi Kaur’s SS ‘14 collec­tion SEMAH is highlighted by a restrained palette of colors encom­passing natural dyes like indigo, reds, greys, ochre, and ecru.


The silhouettes are brought to life with the use of indigenous hand-wo­ven organic textiles from Kutch and Andhra. Sheer cotton weaves like Kota, mulmul; chanderi and linen lend fluidity to the collection.


Engineered placements of twisted tie/dye technique evoke the Band­hej. Mosaic styled geometric patterns derived by block prints paired with rouching/pleating technique along with versatile separates with touches of volume and movement in drapes set a dramatic rhythm.


Tunics with asymmetric folds and hemlines, angarkha inspired Djellabas and long voluminous tops and dresses are the mainstay of the collec­tion. Peplum vests, wrap jumpsuits along with cowelled shalwars, Farsi pajamas and pleated shararas confirm to the mystical vibe.
